Cheer up Mr. Stockfish 8

Mr. Stockfish 8 confessed to me that he feels very exhausted analysing that many games a day. To make his life a little easier I gave him 2 knights in advance.


Funny part - it was my first try with black, but the first game I lost with white. :-D

Well done! This reminds again how weak Stockfish can be.

I tested some opening prep a while back against stockfish in a line of the French.

I mated stockfish level 8 on move 25 (entire line was prep.)
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7
5. Nce2 c5 6. c3 the position started here.

What's even worse is you can set up the Alekhine's Gun for it like this... Then it just disassembles it, and goes about it's business of not doing anything!

That Alekhine's Gun disassembly looks fun - it must be just over SF level 8's horizon, because when you look at local analysis, SF finds the win instantly.

@lurarose : I guess Stockfish "sees" your variation but simply evaluates any other position (with R+B still on board) as superior. Usually it is indeed better to leave rock and bishop on the board, so that is no wonder.

By the way, my local analysis in the "gun position"suggests at depth 21/21 any other move but not to take on c5.
